(Boston, MA/Charlottesville, VA) June 1, 2011
Silverchair Information Systems marked a milestone today in unveiling SCM6, the most substantial upgrade to its SCM web product development platform in company history. Eight leading scientific societies simultaneously announced plans to migrate their digital publishing operations to, and develop new product lines on, SCM6. The announcements were made at the 33rd Annual Meeting of the Society for Scholarly Publishing (SSP).
SCM6 consolidates twelve years of discovery and innovation by Silverchair in applied semantic architecture and digital product development. The result is a system and process that enables STM publishers to meet rapidly escalating demand for more sophisticated, integrated, accurate information services and products.
Built using a natively semantic architecture, SCM6 enables rapid product and feature deployment, best-of-breed navigation and utility for all content types including journals, and support for myriad new business models to optimize publishers’ entire content portfolios.
The debut of SCM6 sees eight leading STM publishers joining with Silverchair to initiate this major leap in innovation:

“Both our clients and our users have made it increasingly clear that a gap exists between their needs and the technology currently available to meet them. Both were declaring the same aspirations: integrate content portfolios, deliver a more personalized user experience, enable an agile approach to product development,” said Silverchair CEO, Thane Kerner. “SCM6 is our response. It leverages Silverchair’s twelve years of experience in semantic technology, delivering a natively semantic platform architecture that allows our clients to innovate faster, bring together all of their content in one flexible interface, and ultimately to deliver far greater value to their customers and users.”
Other highlights of Silverchair’s SCM6 platform include: integrated mobile content delivery, targeted advertising, semantic search, integrated marketing and ecommerce, semantic collections, integrated site management, semantic reporting, configurable widgets, evidence based design, integrated CME/CE, multimedia support across all devices, and much more.
